For visual arts teacher Andrew Harrison, creating art is an important part of being an educator.
“I actually think it’s critical,” said Harrison, who also serves as director of Peddie’s Mariboe Gallery. “There is not a big separation between what I do in the studio and what I am teaching. Keeping active creatively makes me more genuine when talking to my students, and they sense that.”
The music of more than 90 Peddie students resounded brilliantly at Worldstride's Heritage Music Festival in Boston on Saturday as instrumental groups, vocal ensembles and soloists garnered a healthy array of top awards.
Senior David Tattoni claimed top honors at the 112th annual J. Walter Reeves Speaking Contest held Thursday evening in Mount-Burke Theater for his original presentation entitled, "The Endangered Truth," an impassioned plea for wildlife conservation.
